I’m a Philly girl – born and raised. But y’all know that already. What you didn’t know is that Goldenberg’s Peanut Chews are from Philly too. At the time, I didn’t know that they were being made in my backyard.
Peanut Chews were developed by the Goldenberg Candy Company, which was founded by Romanian immigrant, David Goldenberg in 1890. My parents are also Romanian immigrants. (Oooooh the plot thickens!) That peanut-molasses chocolate-coated delight is a major throwback to my childhood – a real old school thing!
I thought this revelation (about how we’re both from Philly, and both children of Romanian immigrants, aren’t you listening?) was kinda cute and funky, so I decided to celebrate this little-known factoid by fessing up to 8 ways I like to eat my GPCs. (That’s shorthand for Goldenberg’s Peanut Chews. I feel like I can call them GPCs since we’re practically like twins separated at birth). Why 8? ‘Cause there are 8 peanut chews in a package and I wear a size 8. Um, wore a size 8, once, I think.
Anyway here are 8 ways to enjoy ‘em:
- Standing at the kitchen counter prepping dinner
- Curled up on the couch with a good book
- One at a time
- All 8 at once
- When the kids are asleep and I don’t have to share
- When the kids catch me and I do have to share
- Dipped in warm milk
- Baked into Peanut Chew Vanilla Cake made by my friend Amy. If you don’t know Amy, you can bake your own.
I’m gonna share Amy’s top secret recipe with you now ‘cause that’s what you do with sweet treats – you spread the love, share the wealth, bake up a batch and put a smile on someone’s face. Ok, so it’s not really top secret. I just like saying that. But it is an important recipe that I know you’ll treasure. So we’ll call it Amy’s (formerly) Top Secret Famous Peanut Chew Vanilla Cake. I think it takes longer to say it than to make it.
